3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep golden. Very spicy yeasty nose, with very little sweetness, but very nice. Great sweet character of honey, and tropical fruits on the palate, with a fantastic floral finish, that finishes very dry.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This corked and caged bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy typically carbonated yellow-orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of malt hops sweet and dough. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught: Strange aroma. Smelled of spices, yeast, citrus, lemon, bubblegum, and menthol. Poured a golden orange color with a big, foamy, white head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Sparkling. Hazy. Medium sweet flavor. Tasted of yeast, spices, honey, coriander, bubblegum, pine, and banana. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Quick, tingly finish. Overall, interesting, but I am not sure what some of the flavors are.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (250ml): Golden, stable and creamy head, lots of floaties visible; sweet fruity-orangey nose with a distinctive mouldy touch; robust sweet (tart-)bitter flavour, medium bodied; strong bitter-sweet finish with a distinctive touch of mould. Disappointing, no pleasure.........

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy burnished yellow-gold with a fluffy white head. Light saison yeast esters, alcohol, faint honey, and malt in the nose. Flavor is straightforward with significant alcohol and light malt flavors--very little, if any, indication of honey in the flavor. Mouthfeel is somewhat out of balance in this beer--the light, wispy flavors seemed pushed around by the alcohol density.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange, with yeast sediments floating around, has a lacing white head. Honey and malt dominated aroma with minor yeast notes. Wheat flavoured with a honey scent on top, again minor yeast notes (bubblegum). Honey and bitter finish. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gorgeous, hazy, dark orange with a white hat of froth that lasted ’til the end. BIG aroma of honey with faint citrus notes. Flavor is honey sweet, which was a surprise because with a Dupont beer I expected more of that to ferment out. Some mild bitterness toward the back end, some light alcohol, nicely dry finish. Lively but thick mouthfeel. I found it delicious, but I think it could have entered another realm if it had been less sweet. Maybe laying a bottle down for a couple of years would do the trick?
